Luongo injured?

In the first period of game 4, with about 30 seconds to go, Bickell took a slapshot on Luongo that almost trickled by Luongo but was later cleared out from in front of the net. Lost in the action was the fact that Luongo was slow to get up after the play and CSN in Chicago showed Luongo skating gingerly and favoring one leg as he headed off the ice for the first intermission. The next period was the one where he gave up 5 goals and the saga began.

So it begs the question: Do you guys think he's injured and AV played Schneider b/c a healthy Schneider gives the Canucks a better chance to win than say a 50 % healthy Luongo? Are the Canucks keeping injury rumors about Luongo on the DL, because it seems to me like everybody is saying it's in Luongo's head where it might be he's not 100 percent physically.

I can't find video or somebody reporting it, but here's a couple of posts that seem to show a timeline of how Luongo went from excellent in game 3/1st period in game 4 to WTF:

Whoa, Bickell with a rocket. It almost killed Luongo.

No doubt in my mind he's injured.

I've been saying it all day today to anyone who would listen.

I don't want to make any more excuses for this team. I've had enough. No one will remember the excuses, only that we gave up a 3-0 series lead.

If Luongo is injured and Corey Schneider has leg cramps, then our lauded goalie tandem is in serious trouble. What would that leave us? Eddie Lack?

I don't even want to think about it.

Video isn't good b/c it doesn't show Luongo on the ground that much but I think this is the shot.

I nearly threw myself out the window! Can someone put something about game 4 in the title or something?

I'm optimistic about Lack, but this would have been worse than playing our 12th Dman last year.
